A ripe mango salad is the perfect fruit salad for the summer. With loads of heart healthy nutrients in the avocado and health benefits from vitamin C in the mango, why not? This salad is a staple in my home in the warm season.

You don’t need a fancy salad dressing recipe for this amazing recipe. Just cut a mango, avocado, and toss it together with the herbs and seasonings.

For years, the Tommy Atkins mango has been the only mango variety available in U.S. grocery stores. They’re grown in Florida and have a great shelf life. I recently ate an Ataulfo mango, which has just come in season. I can attest to the much better flavor of the Ataulfo.

When mango season rolls around, I put them in salads, make mango salsa, blend in smoothies, or juice them. In my home, we just eat them plain, too! Enjoy this easy side dish salad. Make it all season long, and bring it out again next summer!
